Birthday Giveaway


I've been looking for a good excuse for my first giveaway and decided my birthday is as good a reason as any lol - I just love birthdays!!! Doesn't even have to be my own lol

So, to celebrate my birthday I will be sending to the winner a little assortment of stash - at the moment I have no idea what will be included except I can say that I will be including my finish of Winter Violets and some of my hand dyed Blue Opal threads - depends what I find as I fossick!

To enter, leave a comment on this post.

To receive an extra entry, post about this giveaway on your blog Let me know you've done so in your comment.

Non-bloggers can enter, too. Just leave an email address so I can contact you.

I will draw the winner on my birthday - August 4. Don't forget the time difference though!! Australian Central Standard time (I think that's what it's called). So you have til midnight August 3 to enter.

Good luck!

How sweet of you to offer a prize drawing for your bithday - and what a stunning prize it is already! If it's OK I'd like to throw my name into the hat as well :)

BTW, your latest biscornu finish is gorgeous - your model stitching is superb :) Must say I do love the poppy one too - that red really is cheerful :)
